Terms and Conditions
You may return or exchange products within 14 days of the received shipment date, under the following terms and conditions:
- No returns will be accepted after December 15th.
- All returns or exchanges must be pre-approved by Christmasdesigners.com. A Return Authorization Number (RA#) must be issued and clearly indicated on the outer packaging of the returned product, along with the customer’s return address. Once an RA# is assigned, it is only valid for 10 days and will expire on the 11th day after the date of issuance, at which time any returned products will be refused. Please contact Customer Service before the 11th day if you need an extension and we will gladly troubleshoot the issue for you and find the best solution.
- Original shipping charges, plus a restocking fee of 10%, will be deducted from the refundable cost of products that are not being returned due to manufacturer’s defects or shipping errors on the part of Christmasdesigners.com. This includes all returns for ordering too much product, ordering the wrong product, dislike of the product once it is delivered, etc. A restocking fee is generally not charged for exchanged products, as long as the following are true: the balance of product exchanged meets or exceeds the value of the original purchase and returned items are unused and in their original packaging.
- Orders returned totaling $500 or more are subject to a 25% restock fee, no exceptions. These fees cover costs associated with employee labor to ship and then process your return.
- Product orders totaling over $1,000 are not refundable. Because of this, we strongly encourage you to request samples of the exact style, grade and color of the product(s) you are interested in before placing large orders to ensure the products meet your specifications.
- Unless a mistake was made by Christmasdesigners.com, the following items will not be accepted as returns:
- Decorated greens including wreaths, garlands, etc.
- Commercial Christmas Trees
- Displays, Banners, or any customized items
- Light line or zip cord sold by the spool that has been cut, altered, installed, etc. – if a customer is returning for any reason and it was purchased by the spool, the entire footage originally purchased must be returned
- Returned or exchanged products must not be used, installed or modified in any way. The products must be in their original cartons and shipped with sufficient packaging material to ensure they are resalable. All manuals, warranty cards and ancillary items must be in “like new” condition.
- Christmasdesigners.com is not responsible for refunds denied because of the following reasons:
- Products were returned without authorization from Christmasdesigners.com.
- Products were returned without an RA# on the packaging.
- Products were returned with an expired RA#.
- Products were not in “like new” condition with all required accessories and packaging.
Please begin every return/exchange process by completing a Return Authorization Request Form online with as much information as possible, including Warranty Returns. Upon review, we will contact you with the RA# and provide you with any further instructions. DO NOT RETURN THE ITEMS UNTIL YOU HAVE RECEIVED THE RA#. In order to receive your qualified refund or exchange, the items must be received at our warehouse within 11 calendar days of issuing the RA#. If you are unable to return the items within the specified time, please inform the representative that assigned the RA# to your return. See below for details on specific return/exchange situations. Return shipping must be prepaid at the customer’s expense in most cases. If the product qualified under a free shipping offer, then the customer will have the original, actual outgoing shipping cost deducted prior to a refund being given.
Product returns within the warranty period must first be approved by Christmasdesigners.com. Once the warranty return has been shipped back, it will be inspected to determine if it falls under the warranty coverage. The product will then be repaired or replaced at Christmasdesigners.com’s discretion. Generally, a refund is not offered for warranty returns. In the event that an item cannot be repaired or replaced, then a product credit will be offered that can be used for future purchases.
If the product was purchased under 45 days ago, Christmasdesigners.com will issue a UPS return label. If the product was purchased more than 45 days earlier, the customer must cover shipping costs.
Christmasdesigners.com warranties only cover product repair, or replacement, and does not cover any labor or other expenses involved with the installation, service or removal of items purchased from us.
If you wish to cancel or postpone your order, and we are able to accommodate you without additional expense to Christmasdesigners.com, we will do so at no cost to you. If a credit card has already been charged, then there will be a 4% fee to cover the credit card merchant account fees. For orders that have already been processed and shipped then a cancellation will be denied and the shipment will be subject to terms detailed in the RETURNS POLICY above.
Products Damaged in Shipment
If a product is damaged in shipment, please note any obvious damage or shortage when you sign for receipt of the shipment. You must notify us of the damage or shortage within 24 hours of receipt. We will replace or refund the purchase value of the damaged item(s) so long as the incident is properly documented and all claims are made with the carrier within the time allotted. Proper documentation must include a picture of the damaged shipment as it was received. If the same product is no longer available a refund will be issued for the purchase. Christmasdesigners.com reserves the right to refuse returns and not issue a refund or credit for products further damaged upon return shipment and will notify you of such damages at the time they are discovered.
If products are found to be defective upon delivery (and before use) please contact Christmasdesigners.com immediately to file a claim and in order to receive a replacement. If the products have been used but are still covered under the warranty terms, please see above for Warranty Return information.
